"The great achievement of the Bolsa Família Program is the direct confrontation with poverty. And it is technology that is constantly being improved, with a number of changes that have been made to it in recent years. It is the main symbol of the search for equality in our country.

"There are good reasons to believe that Brazil will emerge victorious in this unprecedented challenge. Its task is facilitated by the fact that it has designed and is implementing a plan based on an explicit social contract, and has been able to mobilize human and financial resources needed to quickly move towards socially inclusive and environmentally sustainable development."

"From a social standpoint, the Brazil Without Poverty program is the broadest inclusion policy and thus allows access to real democracy for tens of millions of Brazilians. From a strictly economic standpoint, it is a considerable broadening of the bases of the internal market for mass consumption, stimulating growth without neglecting social inclusion."

"With the Brazil Without Poverty program, the poor have become the object of the transformation of Brazil. The Plan triggers social changes that are related to this subject in Brazilian society. This is part of the conception of a state policy that is creating the capacity for these people to structure demands that public policies offer conditions, based on their insertion, for them to achieve their rights. "

"Over the last decade, extreme poverty fell by half and, contrary to the international trend, the country has achieved a remarkable reduction of inequality. Many factors contributed to this progress. The Government's commitment to poverty reduction, reflected in innovative social policies, such as the conditional cash transfers through the Bolsa Família Program, undoubtedly played a key role."
